…Creating on the Hill…

Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them

…Live ‘Inspired’…


…when i open the doors on a  morning on ‘the hill’ i always have the same feeling that I’m going to my second ‘Home’ , when i saw this sign it was perfect to hang on the door

Annabel gave me this lovely card and i have made it my quote of the week, I’m going to try and live ‘Inspired’ this week.

It really got me thinking of how it just takes one quote, or one hug to make us feel better…..  i came across these lovely words and  I am  using them in a new journal page I’m working on

One SONG can spark a moment
One FLOWER can wake the dream
One TREE can start a forest
One BIRD can herald spring
One SMILE begins a friendship
One HANDCLASP lifts a soul
One STAR can guide a ship at sea
One WORD can frame the goal
One VOTE can change a nation
One SUNBEAM lights a room
One CANDLE wipes out darkness
One LAUGH will conquer gloom
One STEP must start each journey
One WORD must start a prayer
One HOPE will raise our spirits
One TOUCH can show you care
One VOICE can speak with wisdom
One HEART can know what is true
One LIFE can make a difference.

The Crafts House is a small studio on top of a "hill"..a place to create..a place to breathe..a time just for you.. I'm the luckiest person to spend my days creating the art that i love..meeting like minded creative friends..sharing time in the palette of life..

  1. Great pencil cases I sooooo want one!!!!


  2. Hi Sandra – My pumpkin is famous! hee hee – thanks for the mention – and yes – guilty as charged over all things chocolate, although I think Nicola brought the brownies in (I took mine home!). Love the girls’ pencil cases – I used to love stationery when I was their age, and still do – there’s some gorgeous stuff out there and even better when you make your own! Great to see Kirsty and her guests enjoying the Texas Tea Party – it looks amazing – especially the place settings, with fine china no less and the cute teeny cacti. I think I have cake-stand envy! Have a great week. K x


  3. Hi Karen, it was a great night, cake stands (apart from 2) are the ‘Nicola Cake Stand Collection’…i want to start collecting now,they looked fab.
    You Have a good week too, it was so lovely to catch up on Saturday x


  4. Hi Sandra, it was soooo lovely to see you on Saturday, we’ve really missed you, and like Rachel said, as we pulled into the street ‘on the hill’, it’s like coming home……and that’s exactly how it is xx


  5. Lovely words x
